What do you notice when you look up a tall tree? Do you see fungus, other plant species, or cavities that house animals? From a seedling to a towering giant, a tree has an incredible life. Join us on a trail walk with SPES Educator Thuja Quickstad, and learn about the signs of tree decay, tree diseases, and how a tree gets the resources and nutrients it needs to stay healthy. The trees of Stanley Park await you!

Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
